The Science Platform, its Goals and Methods

The Science Platform Sustainability 2030 provides a central forum for science to engage with representatives from politics, business, and society on urgent issues pertaining to sustainability policy. The Platform strenghtens dialogue across borders and its findings are fed into policymaking processes, science, and society.
